It's Your Day!

Good morning!  Yay, it is Saturday!  Who is ready for the weekend?  Me!  Today I have several fun things planned so I'm up and at 'em early, well, early for a Saturday. 

Before we left to see Jon I made this card for Todd's sister's birthday.  Todd and his sister have the same birthday exactly one year apart.  It makes her birthday easier to remember for sure!  Michelle is a hard working, do anything for you gal who forgets that it is okay to take some for herself so that is why I made this card with this image.  On the inside it says '-spoil yourself silly!'  I hope she did take some time to do that!

The patterned paper is from an old Tayolered Expressions kit.  There is lots of shimmer on the bubbles and on the floor.  I really enjoyed making this card. 

This sketch is a sketch with a spin which is to use chipboard.  Well, my little banner that says 'It's your day' is a piece of chipboard from Jenni Bowlin.  (I also used a different shape of chipboard on Thursday for the Meljen's card.)

I have a really exciting day ahead.  This morning (in about 20 minutes) I'm taking a webinar on how to use MyMemories Scrapbooking software (link in my right sidebar).  I already know how to do several things but I thought that some extra hits and tips would be a good thing.  Then, after the webinar a friend is coming over to transfer stuff from my desk top to my new laptop.  Yep, I got a laptop for my craft room.  I'm SO excited that it won't take up as much room!  And then this evening we are heading out to Rigadoon, a dance club we belong too.  I have a fabulous new green dress and sparkly shoes and Todd has a really nice cranberry colored shirt for his tux so we are going to be all Christmas-y! 

Thought of the day:  Bloom where you are planted.
